The Galiano Island Community Library is temporarily closed to the public to ensure we are doing our part to help curb the spread of Covid-19.

We are offering home delivery of books and DVDs for quarantined islanders during the pandemic and extending loan periods.

Step one: Email galianolibraryhomedelivery@gmail.com

To request specific book and/or DVD titles. you can surf our catalogue online at: Galiano Island Library collection

OR feel free to ask for a stack of westerns, climate, fiction, or romance….include your name, address, and Library card number. If we don’t have a title on island, we may be able to request it through Inter-Library loan.

Step two: You will hear back from us within 24 hours. Place a covered waterproof container on your deck or porch and one of our volunteers will deliver your titles.

Step three: After your quarantine, please return your titles to the Library during open hours. Please DO NOT USE the drop box. Place your items in the clearly marked plastic bin in the Library foyer during library hours. We will ensure that books and DVDs enjoy their own appropriate quarantine before re-shelving. We can also pick up items at home for people who are home bound for long periods. Contact us at galianolibraryhomedelivery@gmail.com

This is a trial temporary service to help ensure that our wonderful patrons continue to enjoy our collections.

Stay healthy Galiano!
